Sequential loading of Volga-Dnepr freighters cuts handling 40pc

Volga-Dnepr's specialists successfully used the airline's unique technology and special loading equipment to complete the loading of both flights using an extension ramp, ensuring the job was done in the shortest possible time.
Both charters originated in Orebro, Sweden, and were destined for two cities in China. The shipment consisted of sensitive equipment weighing 21 tonnes.
With two charter flights operating from the same airport, Volga-Dnepr was able to accelerate the delivery time by organising sequential loading procedures involving aircraft towing and avoiding having to dismantle the loading ramp between flights.
By coordinating such a large scope of work, Volga-Dnepr's team was able to decrease the overall loading time for both flights at their departure and arrival airports by six hours or 40 per cent.
'The sequential loading procedures applied for these charters demonstrates our commitment to share the corporate values of all companies we are working with and their desire to improve and develop further,' said a company statement.
